[cheers and applause] >> thank you. please, sit down. i'm excited and thrilled to be here with barack obama in this election year, i think we are dealing with one of the most mysterious and odd figures ever to occupy the oval office. a few days ago, i received a phone call, i didn't recognize the area code, and the phone call was actually from kenya, and i answered it, and it was actually george obama, the president's half brother. he's the youngest son of barack obama, senior. he said, i'm calling because my 2-year-old son is in the hospital with a serious chest condition, and i wondered if you could help me. i said, are you at the hospital, george? yes. hand the phone to the nurse. he did. the nurse confirmed that george's son is sick with a chest infection. i sold george i would send him a thousand dollars by western union. i said, george, suspect the

of the state where tampa and orlando are and the miami metro area. .. we see college graduate group that obama lost by about 11 points in 2008. facing the most polls he's physically about even. i think that makes it very difficult for romney to put together a coalition that can take the state. colorado has been fairly close so again obama mabey looks like a fairy or four-point lead on average read a lot of demographic change. you can see the minority eligible voters have gone up by three percentage points and working-class voters in 2008 have gone down by three percentage points. again it doesn't appear that romney is able to turn the demographics tie in his favor. he's not doing much better among the white working-class voters according to the polls i've seen. he's made some progress on the outside margin that obama got 14 points in 2008 among the college graduate voters but he's not making nearly enough voters to take the state and if you break it down geographically the denver metro area is about half the vote in the state but that looks very similar in the polling data as it did in 2008. f

worth noting. one is missile defense. when the obama administration came into office, they did not cut funding for missile defense. they kept it at about the same level, about $10 billion a year. but they shifted resources to focus much more on other things. these are systems like patriots, it is good for helping protect our forces overseas were -- now, national missile defense systems are really concerned with protecting the united states in particular. the obama administration changed our plans for european missile defense to leverage the existing missile defense system and put that system sure first in romania and poland later on. they also curtailed the ground-based midcourse. they stopped it at 30. i think the wrong administration would actually probably go back and change the balance again, much more in favor of national missile defense systems and we have actually seen in congress, republicans have been pushing the idea of deploying some of these ground-based and interceptors on the united states disclosed. another area of specific differences in shipbuilding. it is an imperfect

of nowhere. this really does go back to the very beginning of the obama administration, the very first television interview. don't forget that president obama gave after he was sworn in which was the arabic cable tv network al arabiya where he promised he would provide middle east peace in our time. than president obama when on went on his first foreign-policy trip to cairo and he spurred our longtime ally egyptian president mubarak by inviting the very violent muslim brotherhood, who at that time was outlawed in egypt, to attend his speech and gave him front row tickets to his speech in cairo. mubarak's policy was to keep the destructive muslim brotherhood at arm's length. when you hear the muslim brotherhood's mission statement i think you will understand why former president mubarak or anyone could one want to stop the violent muslim brotherhood or that the brotherhood is a political entity and this is their motto. it reads and i quote, allah is our objective. the profit is their leader. the koran is our law. jihad is our way. dying in the way of allah is our highest hope. recently

two vastly different presidents, george w. bush, and barack obama when it comes to this conflict. the most important continuity. both have said we are at war. both have side we are at war with al-qaeda and its affiliates. i was watching president obama's inauguration, and carefully looking for signals with regard to this very fundmental thing, and he actually said we are a nation at war. that was somewhat satisfying for someone from my background and point of view. it's not definitive. nobody argued we're at war in iraq or afghanistan. i wanted evidence he believed that we were at war with the groups that attacked us on september 11th. .. he would use law enforcement authorities but he would not limit himself just to law enforcement authorities. he would actually use his authority sounds commander-in-chief to wage war against a foreign enemy. i'm sure you all remember in 2009 after just a few weeks in office president obama was awarded the nobel peace prize. by and large i thought it was awarded because he wasn't president bush and the europeans wanted to confirm that fact.
